If Vodafone Australia don’t release their iPhone pricing/data or respond to my Pre-registration ASAP (and I mean by midday Wednesday only 48 hours before launch) I’m going to unfortunately have to go elsewhere. What is the point of their pre-registration when: One hears nothing back from it except a “Watch your inbox” One goes into a Central Melbourne Vodafone shop and they say “We are not owned by Vodafone so don’t know about pre-registration or when the pricing is available” One rings the Vodafone Connect number and can NOT find any option – menu – or area that will answer your iPhone questions Optus and Vodafone 3G offerings outside Metro areas will use 900Mhz – WTF Carriers!
I can feel it….. Hot on the heels of iPhone release rumours, TUAW post the rumour about iPhone on Vodafone in Australia; and the SMH follow soon thereafter based upon the actual press release from Vodafone. June is just around the corner and my current Vodafone contract runs out this month. Perfect timing. The reason I was hoping for Vodafone is this: with a $79 cap, the $500 credit (currently) covers 3G data usage.
